I want to stop drinking soda pop, and stop eating sugary foods, BUT… This weekend we are having a lot of family over (you’re invited) and I know there is going to be a lot of soda and a lot of sugary foods. Its like starting a diet two days before Thanksgiving, there is no way you are going to stick to your diet. Or even worst, you stick to the diet, don’t eat the pumpkin pie, the corn bread, the canberry sauce, and still don’t loose any weight and end up cheating two weeks later anyway.
It would help if I got water when I go out to eat for lunch with the team, but I usually hate the tap water restraunts give you and end up asking for a diet pop anyway. That’s going to be hard. That along with trying to eat out healthy to begin with. I do not want to start packing my lunch everyday – it turns me into “that guy”. You know, the guy that doesn’t work well with the team, never socializes and never goes out to eat with the team. I won’t be that guy.
At this point I’m just rambling. I will go on an all water week (just for fluids, I’m not fasting here) starting Monday. I know, I know, I may have trouble on the 4th of July (which is Tuesday). If so, I will reset my week to Wednesday, but I will do one continuios seven day period of just water for fluid. After that, we will re-evaluate. I’ll keep you posted.
